  1. I am going to wait on this one to see what the general public is saying about the movie. Soo far this is probably the best review of the movie on the net with others calling the movie “dull”, “boring”, “a blockbuster bust”, the list goes on and on which is sad because I was hoping this movie would be good.

  2. going to see it tomorrow night cant wait wish i could see it for the 1st time tonight though :)

  3. It was AWFUL! After being a huge fan of the book and reading it several times I went to this movie with high expectations. (especially with the author having wrote the script) But no, it’s not even the same story. They changed so many things so much that I couldn’t even enjoy it. If you haven’t read the book, you may enjoy it even though it’s really fast paced and likely to be confusing. If you HAVE read the book, stay away. Stay far far away. Such a disappointment.

    • you really thought it was going to be the same? they had to add a villian cause the book never really had that core villian…. also the director is timur berkenadofdajflkadnlfnadsl;f whatever have you seen wanted? if you expected anything less than what it was i am confused why. I enjoyed it for what it is. If you have read the book then don’t go in expecting the book. Just have fun with it.

      • I don’t think the needed to add a villian in. They could have done just fine with a brotherhood of vampires or something, not some main bad guy that muddles up the original story. I mean they cut out the last chunk of the book with John Wilkes Booth, (who could have been the villian at the end instead or something) and instead just have them going off to the theater. Also, what else happened with Henry being with his group of vampires wanting to preserve America for mankind. That was definitely a better storyline instead of some random vampire helping Abe out. Granted, Wanted was a fast paced movie, but it wasn’t quite an in-depth story that this one was, and had the potential to be based off of the book. I also don’t get why the author (who wrote the script) decided to go so far away from his book. Surely he had some say in how the plot played out.

    • I agree with bucketts. . The movie was a completely different story from the book. The book was an awesome read. The historical accuracy of the characters was great. Although I know the book was fiction, I found myself wondering if it could possibly be true. The movie was a disappointment. I probably would have enjoyed the movie more if I haven’t read the book.

  4. I have been to many midnight showings and alot of times i have to fight to stay awake during boring parts of the movie…This movie I was glued the whole time. Wide awake absolutely LOVED it

  5. I guess I’ll eventually see this on cable…But there’s just no way I can accept the premis. Ol Honest Abe as an action hero….Just doesn’t fit…

  6. I enjoyed it, it was fun if you take it fir wat it is and suspend some belief.

    I wish someone other than abe got some depth though.

    The action was highly stylized and fun.

  7. Let it be known now, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is a crazy ass, FUN movie. See it, have a good time. Not quite the book version,but fun. Not every movie needs to be Oscar contenders people. This is one of those fun movies like a Machete or Resident Evil or John Carter. Sure the “public” might hate on it. But see it for yourself and have a good time. We don’t have to be movie snobs on every damn movie during the Summer.

    • I hadn’t read the book, so once I bought into the vampire premise, (well the title clues you into that), I really enjoyed the movie. Abe was a sympathetic character and the historical blending with the fantasy was
      done well. Just let go and enjoy it for what it is.

  8. great movie! loved how they incorporated all the true historical events to create this type of alternate universe great movie once again and i advise everyone to see it dont take it to seriously guys its called a movie for a reason it isnt suppose to be taken seriously just satisfys our imagination!

  9. I felt it was pretty from the beginning that Henry was a vampire, when he threw the first vampire so easily. Also, it never explains how the vampires are able to exist in sunlight, but there was a store that sold some type of sunscreen; and I think I saw Henry putting some of that on his face.

    Adam was the first and had existed for 5,000 years. How did he become a vampire? The movie talks about curses and rules that can’t be broken but I wanted to know how Adam became the first vampire.

    An enjoyable movie, although a bit obvious at times.

    • EDIT: I felt it was pretty *obvious* from the beginning

  10. I really found it was a fun movie a civil war john carter and it worked for me so 4stars from me

  11. I gave the movie 3 stars(reserved recommedation to friends and DVD watch)because I could not make the leap into believing in Abe as a superhero. I was able to wholehartedly accept the book’s premise that there were vampires behind slavery and that Abe would wage a war to end it. But he retained his humanity throughout with hard work, help from friends and constant reflection.
    These were qualities that keynote our rememberance of the man.
    Anytime charactors act outside of type or historical possiblity becomes jarring to me and unbelievable.
    That said, I really liked the madeup Mary Todd who had a little spit rather then a histronic drag of history.

  12. Ok I thought the whole premise was retarded, but I love this movie, its my second favorite of all the 2011 films so far.

    Only problem I had was when Henry said that when Jesus gave silver to Judas it became the symbol of Vampires but then Aaron later said that he was around when the pyramids. So did vampires come around because of Judas or have vampires been around and Judas’ betrayal and the 32 pieces of silver the start of Vampires hating silver or anything could someone explain on that.

    The action scenes were friggen awesome, I think I’m going to go buy an axe and start swingin lol.

    • The head vampire had been around for 5,000 years, so it had to be before Judas was even conceived.

  13. This was the closest I’ve been to walking out of a theater in years.
    I read and enjoyed the book and I understand the need to change things and add a central villain but IMO it failed on all accounts.
    I thought the effects were terrible. I watched it in 2D so maybe it was better in 3D but I can’t imagine it was that much better.
    There was a point when I thought this could be the sleeper film of the summer but sadly it’s not. Smith started out the year as a writer to look out for but IMO his 1st 2 chances at screen writing have been failures because Dark Shadows and ALVH are so far the worst films I’ve seen in 2012…

  14. This movie is pure fun, that’s about it. If you’re expecting some mega “Gone with the Wind” meets “Blade” meets “Gettysburg”, then you’re in for a disappointment. It’s not that type of film.

    Plus, I don’t see the problem with Abe being a part-time slayer, while he was studying the law and working at a general store. That’s actually not a bad way to segway into his bigger career of being a national leader because ultimately, what he dropped was *fear of failure* and the fact that he started off poor, instead of a man from well off Yankee roots to eastern universities. He was clearly a bootstrapper and he took that with him to the grave.

    Sure, there’s more that this movie could do and yeah, I can think of many ways of better tying up the historical references to the screenplay but that’s what we got.

  15. Funny, most people didn’t get this flick it seems. Maybe that’s a failure, or maybe that’s the success of it. I think the latter. The seriousness is what so funny about it. C’mon it’s Honest Abe slaying vampires!!! And doing it with Matrixesqeu style!! This was a fun and funny movie!

    • Believe it or not, after bonding with the lead character, a lot of viewers in my cinema were saddened when Lincoln went off to Ford’s theater that fateful night. So yeah, the movie is a success because in the end, that’s what we want, a President whom we can admire and call our own, a man of the people.
